My router. The best thing I ever purchased. With it, I’ve jacked into my parents DSL and I’m successfully back online. I had to pry the password out of my father because he was convinced I was going to use it to, quote, “mess with his system”. Umm, right, like I’d even turn that 10 year old paper-weight on and wait the 15 minutes for Windows 95 to boot. They’re so convinced that I bring the computer equivalent of the black death home with me every time I visit since there’s always something wrong with their system while I’m here. Apparently no one told them that Windows 95 isn’t exactly the most stable of operating systems.

So, I can read email once again. Huzzah.

Let’s see. As for day to day things, yesterday Chip and I went to see Finding Nemo. For me this was the second time but Chip hadn’t seen it yet and it was good enough to see twice. It was equally enjoyable the second time around. Today I went and had lunch with Chip, Dave, Dave’s friend Dave and his wife. It was rather tasty. After lunch I washed and waxed the car and did the windows. It started raining a little and I didn’t have time to clean out the inside. This evening I did 4 or 5 loads of laundry, watched the hockey game and searched for jobs. I actually found 3 and I’ll be applying/contacting them on Monday. This, added to my list of 20 or so photographers in the area, seems like a good place to start. I’m also going to contact the Nashua Telegraph and Manchester Union Leader (newspapers for those of you out of state). A pretty good day.

Tomorrow I start contacting people about jobs. I’m not holding out for anything in particular and I plan to pretty much blanket the market and make sure everybody and their brother knows I can shoot for them. We’ll see how it goes.

Oh, and a weird computer sound issue has shown up. Anyone ever had their sound coming out with an echo? I don’t have anything soundcard related installed except for the drivers (no weird Creative Control Pannel or anything). I didn’t change anything and can’t find a way to turn it off. Any suggestions?

Oh, and outgoing email doesn’t seem to be working. Someone remind me, do I have to have SSL turned on for outgoing mail from hindenburg? Cause I do. It worked once… I just don’t remember what I have to do to get it to work again.

That’s about it. I’m just happy to be back online at the moment.
